I am a 1st time new pool owner of about 2 months. I am experiencing my ph rising continuously. Is this normal and will it settle down eventually for this plaster pebblesheen pool? All my readings seem good. I have a waterfall which I hardly run and a spa spill over that spills over into the pool which I run the pool filter pump 8 hrs a day on low 1725 rpm so it is more of a tricle over. I'm having to add a pint or two of acid about every 5 days to try to get ph down from 7.8-8 to 7.4-7.6.
I just took my readings using a taylor k2006 test kit
